The Holy Qur’an is a book of guidance and spiritual progress. This book outlines the values and beliefs that can make you the best person you can be. It teaches a way of thinking that is positive, progressive and solution-oriented.
Any person who adopts the world-view of this book becomes a person who believes in justice for all, equality for all and personal responsibility.
The Qur’an teaches its message in a very unique way. It is not a book like other religious books that starts with the beginning of time and tells the stories of thousands of people and hundreds of nations and their ups and downs before closing with predictions about the future. It isn’t a book of thousands of laws or diverse types of lectures, stories or poems, again like you would find in other holy books.
The Qur’an is more of a book of persuasion – it is a book that speaks to you like a friend. Stories of famous people are given only as a way to prove a point. Laws are few and are connected with trying to make you a better person. Poetic phrases become beautiful ways to remember sound advice and good teachings. You can open the book at any page, start reading and learn something useful.
In short, the Qur’an is a personal letter from Allah to you, asking you to become something more than you thought you could be: someone whom Allah loves and someone who loves Allah’s world so much that he or she will do everything in their power to take good care of it and place their ultimate hopes in an even better one.
This translation of the meaning of the Qur’an is not the same as the original Arabic Qur’an. You can use this book to get at the meanings and message of the Qur’an, but it is the original Arabic text where the message really lives. May your search bear fruit and may the message of the Qur’an guide your way for all the rest of your days.
